Favorite films » A Fish Called Wanda (1988), Charles Crichton “Let me correct you on a few things: Aristotle was not Belgian. The central message of Buddhism is not ‘every man for himself.’ And the London Underground is not a political movement. Those are all mistakes, Otto. I looked them up.”
KK: More and more actresses in their 40s and 50s are still working and getting key roles. Well, three of them are—you, Helen Mirren, and Meryl Streep. What are the reasons for this? SW:I don’t think it’s any more than it used to be, if you look at the character roles of the ’30s and ’40s. But I think one of the reasons the roles are coming to us is because, with someone like Meryl, people can count on her to turn in these amazing performances that [moviegoers] will go out to see. Writers are writing stories with good women’s parts because women are a part of our world. We’re much more integrated than we used to be.
Great interview with Sigourney Weaver by Kevin Kline!
